With more and more passenger cars being registered into car sharing schemes on German roads AID took the opportunity to test BMWs DriveNow scheme in Berlin

The freedom to drive at a whim a near-new car in the heart of a European city without the burden of parking, sky-high insurance, re-fuelling - or monthly membership-fees, BMW and Sixts 50/50 joint-venture car sharing scheme - founded in Munich June 2011 - has so far attracted 115,000 German members for whom car-sharing is the future of urban motoring.

Last year alone, some 60,000 new members joined the scheme. Presently spread across 4 German cities, Berlin has attracted 50,000 of these members followed by 39,000, 14,000 and 12,000 in Munich, Dsseldorf and Cologne respectively. 

With BMW confirming that more cities are in development, AID investigates if this is the future of urban automotive ownership
